Crave Fishbar

Modern Seafood

  • 90

This Midtown location of Crave Fishbar (there is also an Upper West Side location) showcases inspired seafood dishes like lobster curry, plancha-grilled octopus or fluke ceviche tostadas. Both bars are backed by a hanging installation of Old World wines alongside cocktails like the Quiet Clam (Lillet Blanc, gin, cucumber, basil, lemon). These casual spots feature rustic, wood-accented dining rooms with a subtle nautical vibe.
